    Not So Scary Halloween

The date that we went in September was sold out and I was curious about the wait times but the wait lines were not bad at all. I encourage you to get your tickets in advance as they do sell out…     Dates for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2018: August 17, 24, 28, 31 September 3, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16, 18, 21, 23, 25, 28, 30 October 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 19, 21, 23, 25, 26, 28, 30, 31 Mickey’s…

    The Happiest Place On Earth

    What can I say, my daughter and I love Disney. Our favorites parks are Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and the Magic Kingdom. At home, she loves Princesses and animals so you see the reasons behind our favorites. I have found it is important to plan out your day to get the most enjoyment for both you and your little one(s). A few days prior to going to the park I reviewed the rides in the parks we were planning to visit and set a plan for which rides and when we wanted to be at the ride. You can set up your FastPass ahead of your arrival and I recommend this…

    The Ultimate Girl’s Trip

      On the road again. Getting adults and a toddler packed for some time away from home is a challenge but one I am willing to take on for the personal and professional benefits are well worth it for my daughter and me. With the car packed and the little one snug in her car seat, we are off. A great purchase is some sort of DVD/Video Player and some favorite movies. For my daughter, the favorite is Frozen. I signed up for the Disney Movie Club. It was five movies for a dollar and two more for a special price. I walked away with seven movies for the price…

    The Westin Riverwalk San Antonio, Texas

    I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Westin Riverwalk property this weekend. The property could not have been in a better location. When we arrived in busy San Antonio, I immediately noticed the private drive provided by the Westin. The private horseshoe driveway off of the street was very helpful for unloading our luggage and keeping the kids safe from traffic! We were immediately greeted by the valet and helped with our luggage. I went to check in and learned that our room had been upgraded to the Hospitality Suite with 2 attached rooms. The bellman helped us with our luggage and upstairs we went. When I saw the…

    Manning’s Sports Bar & Grill

    If you are ever in New Orleans with a toddler and looking for a fun, casual, child-friendly place to eat, Manning’s Sports Bar & Grill  is the place. You have a wide variety of seating options to choose from, both inside and outside. If you are a sports fan, big-screen televisions line the walls both inside and outside. The restaurant is right inside of Harrahs’ New Orleans, an easy walk from multiple hotels and the Casino, but there was a chance of rain the day we went so we drove instead. A parking garage leads you to Manning’s and several other dining options. When we arrived at the restaurant we…

    Sheraton New Orleans

    After saying goodbye to the beautiful beaches of Florida I needed a fun place to stop for a driving break for my daughter and me. New Orleans was a great choice. I chose to stay at the Sheraton New Orleans for several reasons and I was so glad I chose them. The hotel is located on Canal Street within walking distance of Bourbon Street, the Riverwalk, the Port of New Orleans and much more. Because it is a high-profile building, it is an easy find in the often confusing streets of the Crescent City. I pulled into the garage entrance and was thrilled to see valet parking and bellman, as my…

    Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park

    During our stay at The Island in Fort Walton Beach, the Director of Sales provided us with tickets to the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park. Conveniently located in Fort Walton Beach, the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park is dedicated to educating, entertaining, and inspiring our guests to respect and preserve wildlife by providing unique and memorable experiences for visitors of all ages to connect with marine life. It is a popular attraction for visitors in Fort Walton Beach, Destin and the surrounding areas, and for good reason! I did not feel our trip would be complete without experiencing the outdoor aquarium, so we arrived 54 minutes before opening and secured an excellent…

    Residence Inn: Going Above and Beyond with Customer Service

    We had such a great time in Sandestin and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Residence Inn. But in addition to the fun in the sun that we enjoyed there, I want to tell you about how wonderful the customer service was at the Residence Inn Sandestin at Grand Boulevard, and how much easier it made my trip. As all working moms know, it is never all fun and games. When you own a business you sometimes have to work, even when you’re on vacation! I’ve enjoyed the freedom of this trip, but I have still had to make sure that I meet the deadlines that keep my clients generating leads.…
